You seem to have forgotten that this new development, with its large numbers of people, will overwhelm the already traffic saturated Rockville Pike. It can't hold any more cars. Other infrastructure, such as schools, electricity, water, gas, and emergency services, are saturated also. These conversions of traditional suburbia to urbania also cause a decline in quality of life for existing residents. What little open space there is now is taken away. There simply is no necessity for the County Council to continue approving all these development requests. They primarily serve to profit developers. Before the developments are built, the infrastructure should be in place, to avoid gridlock on roads, overcrowding of schools, continued electrical power outages, etc. Developers should also build new parks, greenspace, and green buffer zones.
